Extended Data Fig. 5

a, Measurement of senescence marker expression in the organs of 5-month-old Vav-iCre mice (n = 3 mice per group). be, Representative images of p16 in situ hybridization with immunostain or chemical stain for parenchymal markers of liver (b, c), kidney (d) and lung (e) sections from 8–11-month-old Vav-iCre+/−;Ercc1−/fl mice, littermate control Vav-iCre+/− mice and 2-year-old wild-type mice stained for albumin (liver), phalloidin (liver and lung) or kidney-specific (KSP)-cadherin in the red channel, DAPI (blue), and p16 LNA probe (green). The full set of images from Fig. 3c is shown in b. Original magnification, ×40. Scale bar, 10 μm. f, Representative images of SA-β-gal staining on tissues from 8–10-month-old Vav-iCre+/−;Ercc1−/fl and littermate controls. Original magnification, ×20. Scale bar, 50 μm. g, Senescence marker expression in the livers of 8–11-month-old Vav-iCre+/−;Ercc1−/fl (n = 5 male and 4–5 female) (see Supplementary Table 3 for sample size details by gender and gene) and littermate control mice (n = 3 male and 3–4 female) as well as 4-month-old (n = 3 male and 3–4 female) and 2-year-old (n = 6 male and 4–5 female) wild-type mice. h, Levels of circulating SASP factor proteins measured by multiplex ELISA in serum from Vav-iCre+/−;Ercc1−/fl (n = 3 male and 3–4 female) and Vav-iCre+/ (n = 3 male and 3 female) mice. Data are mean ± s.d. *P < 0.05, ∞P < 0.01, P < 0.001, #P < 0.0001, unpaired two-tailed Student’s t-test (a) or two-way ANOVA with Tukey’s test (g, h).
